The clever kitchen witch knows she need not look further than her pantry to find all the magical ingredients she could possibly need to whip up a spell for any occasion. There is magic in everything you eat and all you have to do to harness it is learn about it and prepare it with intention. Every food item, from the exotic to the mundane, has alchemical and magical properties. With knowledge of these properties, you can create a meal that's perfectly in balance, a meal that brings things into balance, or a meal that draws magical energies to help you achieve your goals. Here is a list of the magical qualities or correspondences of everyday foods so that you, the kitchen witch, can create your own magical recipes or discover the magical qualities of recipes you already prepare on a regular basis.

Be sure to also explore my collection of Kitchen Witch Recipes.
